  2. Install redocusaurus:


    yarn add redocusaurus
    # OR
    pnpm add redocusaurus
    # OR
    npm i --save redocusaurus
  3. Add it as a preset to your docusaurus config along with @docusaurus/preset-classic and pass options:

    // docusaurus.config.ts
    import type { Config } from '@docusaurus/types';
    import type * as Preset from '@docusaurus/preset-classic';
    import type * as Redocusaurus from 'redocusaurus';

    const config: Config = {
    // ...
    presets: [
    // .. Your other presets' config
    googleAnalytics: {
    trackingID: 'XXXXXX',
    } satisfies Preset.Options,
    // Redocusaurus config
    // Plugin Options for loading OpenAPI files
    specs: [
    // Pass it a path to a local OpenAPI YAML file
    // Redocusaurus will automatically bundle your spec into a single file during the build
    spec: 'openapi/index.yaml',
    route: '/api/',
    // You can also pass it a OpenAPI spec URL
    spec: '',
    route: '/openapi/',
    // Theme Options for modifying how redoc renders them
    theme: {
    // Change with your site colors
    primaryColor: '#1890ff',
    ] satisfies Redocusaurus.PresetEntry,
    // ... Rest of your config

    export default config;

The API Doc will be available at the path specific by route. To skip adding a route altogether just don't set the route property. You will still be able to reference schema elements manually using Schema Imports or create Custom React Pages using the data and theme components. If you have a redocly.yaml it will be loaded automatically.
